Tia starts to get closer to Salinger and learns about his side business that he shares with Huxley. The two get the chance to be intimate with each other finally. The others start to be jealous from the time that the two start spending together, Fallon specifically.
Salinger’s mother requires that Tia goes through testing to see if she is pregnant yet and in return is willing to help free Giles from his imprisonment. While giving blood for testing, Tia and Salinger see her father that she has been hiding from.
Each book in this series is written between one of the six husbands and this one is specific to Tia and Salinger. Salinger is a rather complicated character, not as complicated as Banks, but still rather deep. Salinger’s anger is written well and so is Tia’s fear. Written between two authors the transitions are smooth and it isn’t clear who wrote what. The two authors work well together as their third book comes out. Each of the guys though not from their point of view in this story adds to everything that happens. Next book is from Banks point of view so it should be an interesting read.
